Make Them Feel Special
Gift ideas for big siblings
Becoming a sister or brother is a biggie. So when you're picking out a gift for the new baby, remember that it’s nice to recognize the big kid in the house, too.
Jewelry is always thoughtful; check out tinyPOSH's 14k gold Double Heart Necklace ($249) and the Big, Little, or Middle Brother Dog Tag ID Bracelet ($11.50) from Etsy seller Monkeys N Munchkins. Etsy has plenty of cool tees, too. We found this cheeky graphic mustache look for big brothers ($22) and this darling patchwork tee
for big sisters ($25.95). We also like the idea of giving these Shapemaker Blocks ($75), a personalized football ($180), or this super-cute Scooter Set ($126).
There are plenty of bedtime stories on the subject, but we found Jo Witek's Hello In There!: A Big Sister's Book of Waiting especially touching. Perhaps the sweetest of all are Brio Trio's totally charming handmade stuffed animal duos, like this Big Sister/Little Sister Owl Set ($38).
